Biochemistry & Immunology Programme TCD

Each year TY students can apply to compete for a place on this programme. The two main  areas studied in the School are Biochemistry and Immunology. Biochemistry is the study of the chemical basis of life. Immunology is the study of how the immune system protects against infection and tumours.

If successful with their application, students spend  half of the week in a research laboratory interacting with undergraduate students and senior researchers learning about and participating in the lab’s research. The remainder of the week involves group activities with talks, quizzes and visits to scientifically relevant sites on campus.

In 2015/16 Laura McNamara attended. Brianna Fennell TY5  attended TCD from 27th Feb to 3 March 2017.
